X-Factor Malta runner-up Owen Leuellen’s fans are pushing for winner Michela Pace’s Eurovision appearance to feature the Maltese rapper by starting a petition for the cause.
Yesterday, Leuellen was head to head with the Gozitan winner until he lost the final battle for pole position. Apart from a being signed to Sony in Italy, Pace will be representing Malta in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv.
The petition explains that for Malta to finally be a Eurovision success, the person sent to represent that country needs to be more phenomenal than the others, with something different to offer while still retaining public appeal. Leuellen’s fans also insisted that the rapper’s style should go well with Michela’s, and their collaboration would surprise everyone.
